Viet Nam targets $12 bln in mobile phone exports this year

The annual value of mobile phone and components exports of Vietnam is forecast to reach $12 billion by the end of 2012, according to the Ministry of Industry and Trade.

To meet the target, experts said Vietnamese exporters should attach importance to ensuring the quality of their products, to protect brand names and secure sales.

They should also expand trading to new markets.

By the end of January this year, Vietnam ’s mobile and components export revenue reached $850 million, up 0.8 percent over the previous month’s figure and 113.9 percent over the same period last year.
